Makan Time!

I was taken with Amelia's December Challenge sketch on Papier Love's blog (Papier Love is our LSS), yet  I couldn't decide what to scrap on but I really wanted to. My mind keeps going cards cards cards, when I see pattern papers, I think cards cards cards, when I sit at the craft table, I envision cards cards cards .... *goodness* I needed that to stop for awhile so I can do a proper scrap. After a few days of futile mixing and matching various papers and photos, the mojo finally hit. Gosh I really hate it when it takes so darn long to come to me, I almost wanted to give up. I hope I'm not losing it! :( So anyway I finally decided on an older photo taken of Lucas during his meal time. These cutesy October Afternoon papers fits perfectly for a boyish kiddy theme.

My LO is entitled "Makan Time" which means Meal Time. "Makan" is a Malay word for eat or rather 'meal' in this context. I think this photo was taken back in May by hubby. Lucas was probably around 8 months old thereabouts.

Below are the challenge criteria and sketch:

Create a 12'X12' layout based on the Sketch above and to incorporate..

1. At least 1 Martha Stewart Puncher.

2. Minimum of 3 Pattern Papers.

3. Any product from Prima.

The challenge starts from 1st Dec 2011 - 31st Dec 2011. Kindly submit your link at the comment section, and if you don't have a blog please email your layout to Macy at This contest is open to residence/address of Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei.

My compliance with the challenge requirements:
  1. I used 2 Martha Stewart puncher; a border punch and the butterfly punch
  2. I definitely have more than 3 pattern papers here
  3. I used 2 blue flowers from Prima's Romantique collection.
Here are my close-ups:

I'm really quite pleased with this and I'm just itching to scrap more photos now *rubs hands* I've completed a major 8 x 8 album project yesterday (pheewww) and I'm almost done with another 6 x 6 project (this is for my newborn niece, will share soon), after that I'm looking forward to some leisurely scrapping :)

Meanwhile, do head on over to Papier's blog and check out this challenge, play along if you're Malaysian, Singaporean or Bruneian and you could just win an awesome RAK :) Challenge ends by 31st December.

Well, that's it for now, I'm sure we're all looking forward to a nice weekend with our families. It's school holiday season here and the malls and streets are pretty much decked with lots of festive trimmings. Everyone's in a festive mood.... falalalala :)

Happy weekend and God bless!
